Describe the changes desired in the rebuilt home: After the Tubbs Fire destroyed a private residence located at the top of Skyfarm Drive, the owners spent three years designing and building a new home of their dreams with the intent to construct it with the ability to withstand fires, earthquakes and other natural disasters and provide them with peace of mind.

This home site offers its owners a picturesque panorama. The new dwelling was positioned on the property to take advantage of the most impressive views, and to provide the most usable outdoor space for a variety of recreational and entertaining features.

The property owners turned to Christopherson Builders to make their vision come true.

The Christopherson family has been building both custom homes and developing neighborhoods in the North Bay since 1978 in addition to nearly 7,000 homes across northern California.

What makes this project special?: “The entire rebuilding process included a custom pool, putting green, shuffleboard court, bocce ball court, top-end finishes, appliances and a home automation system that make this a very impressive residence,” said Keith Christopherson.

“The finished home is an entertainer’s delight with open spaces, a large covered patio, an overhead cantilevered shade structure, and a lighted water wall. These features all combine to make this home one of the best in Santa Rosa. With a strong focus on quality and customer service, we are proud to continue this legacy of fine home building,” Christopherson said.

The design team for the Skyfarm Drive home included Kevin Farrell, Farrell Faber Architects, Alan Furste with Carlile Macy Civil engineers, Kelly Johnson with Johnson Debois Forest structural engineers and Mike Cook with INTEGRA Landscape Architecture. In addition, a total of 30 subcontractors — including suppliers, appliance distributors and construction trade groups — were involved.Our entire team at Christopherson Builders would like to thank all of the visionaries, artists, craftspeople and operational wizards that collaborated to make this project come together in all its exceptional glory!

Most of all, we’d like to share a special thanks and aloha to our clients!  You were an absolute delight to work with, and we would not have been able to share these glorious photos of your dream home without your over-the-top generosity and kindness.
